This kit is something that has developed from our Rally & Overland long-term experiences with the KTM 690 Enduro.
The OEM cast footrest hangers are attached to the main frame with 4 off M8 hex head screws, but unfortunately the recess in the hangers is too small diameter to use the 10mm socket supplied with the KTM toolkit, and using the torx feature in the screw does not allow for adequate purchase for tightening or undoing(especially if loctite is used).
Also, both bolts screw into threaded inserts welded to the frame, which can come detached, making it near impossible to remove the footrest hangers, unless in the workshop with special tools.
By replacing the hex head bolts with M8 Cap Head Screws, this allows for much more definite purchases on the screw with an allen key, and also they are slightly longer than the OEM bolts, allowing for the fitment of a nyloc nut on the inside of the front mounting only, on each side.This 100% prevents any loosening of the screws whilst riding.
A quick, simple fix to prevent problems on the track.
